Wednesday, April 18, 2012
Vancouver — An “EcoFair” and tree plantings will highlight an Earth Day celebration Saturday at Salmon Creek Regional Park, near Klineline Pond. The event, hosted by Clark Public Utilities’ StreamTeam, is now in its 13th year and includes more than 40 participating organizations, according to the utility.
Plantings will start at about 8:30 a.m. Saturday, wrapping up at about 12:30 p.m. Volunteers must register in advance to participate.
The free EcoFair offers nature walks and talks, entertainment and information booths from local environmental organizations and businesses. Other activities include a wildlife show, painting and disc golf. The fair will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Earlier in the day, volunteers will plant trees in the area and pull non-native garlic mustard plants, according to Clark Public Utilities. Clark County’s Environmental Services Department is a cohost of the event.
